Congratulations America, the Republican controlled House of Representatives just passed CISPA, which will allow private companies to share your personal online information with the government with no worry of legal liability. If AT&T shares your medical records with Uncle Sam, well that’s too bad. There’s nothing you can do about it.
Now it goes to the Senate, where McCain, and Schumer are waiting to send it to the president for signature. Obama has indicated that he might veto, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
Soon the government (in theory) will be able to follow your web browsing (with help from private industry) without so much as a warrant.
Land of the free and home of the brave.
